Culture, Self-Identity, and Work

Due to the broadness of the term ‘culture’, this chapter concentrates on macro-level cultural aspects and outlines several methods in the learning and exploring of the traditions, norms, and values of people from different orientations and backgrounds. It seeks to provide conceptual paradigms on intercultural studies from areas of the social sciences. Analysis of organisational behaviour using culture is essential for many reasons. First, the imposition of global standards to corporate institutions has turned into a compulsion instead of an exception. Second, the applicability of researches to different contexts, considering the diversity in norms, dispositions, practices, type of government, demography, location, restrictions, values, and other crucial factors is considered. Last, it is argued that the distinctions between cultures and countries should be propagated and incorporated in ‘cross-cultural’ studies.

Keywords:   culture, conceptual framework, social sciences, corporate organisations, cross-cultural studies
